Magnitude 6.0 quake hits Iran

The quake occurred at 3:17 p.m.at a depth of about three miles.

The quake jolted the downtown area of the state capital, Dover, sending a handful of lawmakers and workers in the statehouse outdoors to see what happened as area residents gathered for the city's annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony a couple of blocks away. Several U.S. states have never reported a damaging quake.

"(It) puts it below all the sand in the Delmarva and into the basin rock below Dover", Geologist Richard Ortt, with the Maryland Geological Survey said.

There was no initial word on damage or injury resulting from the quake.

Graduate student Husam Albarmawi told the AP that he and his wife ran out of their 23rd-story apartment after feeling two jolts that were roughly 20 seconds apart.

"For the eastern U.S.it's fairly significant because they don't very many of that size and when they do get one of this side they are felt over a wider area than in other areas of the country such as California", John Bellini with the National Earthquake Information Center told FOX 5. "It was actually pretty scary and pretty surprising".

Thursday a 4.1 magnitude natural disaster hit near Delaware's state capitol of Dover and according to reports was the strongest quake to strike the "The First State" in at least 146 years. That quake disrupted air traffic and led to congestion on cell phone networks. It caused damage to public buildings, pipes and monuments, most notably the National Cathedral and the Washington Monument. This article has been updated.
